Brilliant success is a result of the hard work that goes into producing it. Like any crop, we reap what we sow. If nothing goes in, nothing comes out.

I have no idea when priority, meaning “prime concern, first concern, matter of greatest importance” and “a thing that is regarded as more important than another” or the British definition of “the right to take precedence or to proceed before others”, became accepted as a plural word. By definition, and for all practical reason, only… Continue reading Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural

Relax and reconnect with far-away dreams, endless possibilities, and the grit to see them through. Perhaps restore the buried hope that you can do anything you put your mind to, and your treasure is out there waiting for you!
